    I have been to both E4S and CDPUG events. I enjoy them both. E4S is a great resource for learning about local business whose part of their mission is “sustainability.” I learn something new every time I go. The goal for E4S is Zero Waste. More importantly, this group knows the value of networking – there is plenty of opportunity for what E4S calls power networking.

    CDPUG: I am a graphic designer so I try to go to the many educational programs from Photoshop to InDesign. The members are knowledgeable about programs and easy to talk to. They also give away prizes and Free Pizza during all events.

    Get out there and Network.
